I have a few email accounts (work/personal/other projects). It wasn't like this before, but when I open a new window now, it goes to my email account that is already opened as opposed to the home page I have set in my internet options. It doesn't do this with every site, just my email.

How do I stop this?

Is your start page your email page?

When I CTRL-N I get my start page.

My start page is the sign in page for my email. I use two browsers because it allows me to have two accounts open at the same time. If I did it in the same browser, I would be signed out of one automatically.

I don't use the tabs though. I'll usually just open a new window. And this wasn't a problem on my other computer. I'd open a new window and it would open at the start page I set up. Now it opens with whatever email account is already open.

I guess I can change the start page to Google.com and sign in from there. See what happens.

Maybe your email interface supports its own hot keys, which override those of your browser.

Well, with some email services such as Windows Live Mail, Hotmail, Bing mail or whatever it is called now, pressing Ctrl-N for instance serves to open the mail composition window (which thus overrides the Ctrl-N command of the browser to open a new browser window / instance). I guess Yahoo and Gmail know such hot keys as well, but one can disable them.
